DARK INTRUDER / Universal - 1965 / Music by Lalo Schifrin

Okay, here is hard to find 59 minute oddity from 1965 by producer Jack Laird who later produce NIGHT GALLERY. Star Leslie Nielsen and Mark Richman. Flick play mostly on TV but play at theater too. Was TV series pilot name THE BLACK CLOAK that nobloody pick up.

Music is great!! Lalo Schifrin have 196 composing credit and 49 soundtrack credit with title like MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, THE NUDE BOMB, WAYNE'S WORLD, ACE VENTURA, COOL HAND LUKE, NIGHT GALLERY, BENNY HILL, EARTH II, THE NEPTUNE FACTOR, ENTER THE DRAGON, MAGNUM FORCE, BRENDA STARR, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, CAVEMAN and he still working!!

NOOOO, NOT AGAIN!!

Leslie Nielsen play Brett Kingsford, playboy professor of the occult!

So, Brett go around trying to figure out mystery when he get attack by intruder who wearing dark apparel. Hmmm!..

Oh, and he have big sharp claw!!

Leslie and Mark go to seance for answer but still all mix up. Seance dude really Intruder!

Intruder lookin' for bro Mark, he have little present for him!

Intruder take over Mark' body so when Mark die, he change back into Intruder!.. Cool monster!!

I saw this movie many, many moons ago on a local horror movie show. Not bad, but somewhat liited by budget. IIRC they either re-shot or re-dubbed the ending to close off what would have been an open ending that would lead into the series.

A few years after this Universal, 20th Century Fox, and other TV producers would make MOWs that would serve as back door pilots (man, that sounds dirty!)for TV series, figuring (correctly) that a 75-90 minute made for TV movie would have a better syndication life than a 48-60 minute episode.
